    My local MP steps down at next general election in the wake expenses scandal. He held a constituents meeting here last night and was heckled and handed a long petition to resign. David Cameron also told him to go as he was a liability to the Tory gambit to win the next election.

    Power to the people!

    Is his wife staying on though? Shocking double standards if she is.

    Good point. It looks like there are come-back clauses reading between the lines. He should go now and now be allowed to stand again.
